Favourites: June 2016

Christine Comelli

So June has come and gone and I am again in awe of how fast this year is going by. Here's a monthly round-up of my favourite products of the month :) enjoy!

1) Zoè Foster-Blake: Amazinger Face
Zoè and Hamish are my favourite people in the whole entire world and I was so excited to hear that Zoè was releasing an updated version of her original book 'Amazing Face'. I didn't yet own Amazing Face, but had picked it up and had a flick-through whilst book-shopping, so I pre-ordered Amazinger Face as soon as she had annouched pre-orders on her Instagram account. It is just the most adorable book :) it's filled with skincare and make-up tips and is jazzed up in good-old ZFB fashion with adorable graphics and a hilarious tone to it!

2) Kikki.K: Wellness Planner (Grey)
So I decided to move out of my Family Diary for the year and shift back into my planner and I'm so happy I did! I really did love the layout of my Family Diary, but having everything condensed into planner form was something I really did miss when using my diary. I cannot recommend Kikki.K planners enough - I keep all of my uni notes, dates and appointments and plan everything in mine! I'll start putting together a 'What's in my Planner' post actually in the next few weeks so you can see how I utilise my planner! :)

3) Josie Maran: Coconut Watercolour Eyeshadow (Rio De Rose Gold)
I picked this up a few months ago but have just started to use it quite a bit. This is such a pretty product and the pigmentation is intenseee, so it makes it a perfect fit for a night out! The only down-side to this product is that the pigment separates from the coconut water, so you do have to give it a little mix-up with a tooth-pick before use, but it is so, so worth it for the colour payoff! 

4) Soap & Glory: Girligo Moisturising Mist
I think it's a given that any Soap & Glory product you pick up is going to smell like heaven and this product is no exception! It smells like sweet marshmallows and lovely sweets and just smells so, so good! It's such a quick and easy way to moisturise your body and whilst it's not as hydrating as a Body Shop or Korres body butter, if you are lazy like me in terms of body-moisturising, I'd highly recommend this!

5) ASOS: Ultimate Chunky Cardigan (Blush)
I am really going through a peach/blush phase at the moment and I got a hold of this cardigan a few months ago from ASOS. It is completely sold out online, but I'm so glad I got my hands on it when I did because it's the perfect throw-over cardi for everyday wear :)

6) Australis: Ready Set Go Finishing Powder
Powdering my face was never something I really considered adding into my make-up routine until I started watching NikkieTutorials and PatrickStarrr and after watching a few of their videos, I was tempted to give it a go! I looked for something that was super affordable so I could test it out and see if I liked it, so I picked up this Australis powder which is around $10 at Priceline. I actually am really enjoying it! It sets my make-up and makes it last much longer than it would without anything added to it. I am a fan! :)

7) L'Oreal: Infallible Mattifying Base
I have been loving this primer, it feels so nice on the skin and makes my make-up last all-day, even if I have a seven hour shift at work and then need to head somewhere straight after!

8) ColourPop: LippieStix (Lumiere)
I adore ColourPop and all of their LippieStix and just all of their products that I own, but I've found that during the past month, I've been grabbing Lumiere more than any other lip product that I own! It's such a pretty nude-purple-brown colour which is perfect for the colder months.

9) Moo: Business Cards
I was so excited when my business cards came in the mail! Here's a little image of what they came out like and I was so happy with their finish and how easy it was to get these uploaded and printed! I could not recommend Moo enough :)

10) NetFlix: Narcos
This is going to sound unusual, but I have fallen in love with this NetFlix show about Pablo Escobar! I haven't yet finished the first season, but I'm very close to the end and it's sooo addictive! According to IMDB, here's a little synopsis of what it's about (written by Soumik Ghosh):
'Narcos tells the true-life story of the growth and spread of cocaine drug cartels across the globe and attendant efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. It centers around the notorious Colombian cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura) and Steve Murphy (Holbrook), a DEA agent sent to Colombia on a U.S. mission to capture and ultimately kill him.'
